Ugly Animals (ft. Simon Watt)

Apr 10, 2017, 09:30 PM

It's a seminal show this week as we are joined by Simon Watt, founder of the Ugly Animal Preservation Society, "raising the profile of some of Mother's Nature's more aesthetically challenged children". Simon shares fascinating facts about his favourite ugly animals, as well as why frogs are every biologist's dream, and how to imitate an insect with just a balloon and a coin. Plus we announce our very own Ugly Animal Science Mixtape Mascot as voted by YOU our listeners! Who will be victorious - the Aye Aye, the Saiga Antelope, the Wart-Biter Cricket, or the Axolotl...?!

Mixtape: 1. Never Ever Ever Ever Again by Siskiyou 2. Ingenue by Atoms For Peace 3. Atlas by Battles 4. New Slang by The Shins 5. Twin Tub Twin (Tunng Remix) by King Creosote 6. Adieu Sweet Lovely Nancy by The Ballina Whalers
